Rocco & Roxie Stain & Odor Eliminator for Strong Odor – Enzyme-Powered Pet Odor Eliminator for Home – Carpet Stain Remover for Cats and Dog Pee – Enzymatic Cat Urine Destroyer – Carpet Cleaner Spray Pet Supplies
Accidents happen. After all, dogs are only canines. And even the best-behaved cats sometimes think outside the litter box. That’s when it’s up to us, as their true best friends, to have the right product on hand to restore peace, love, and carpets. In the case of pet urine and other tough stains and odors, Rocco & Roxie Stain & Odor Eliminator is the one to reach for. Its professional-strength bio-enzymatic formula goes to work at once, releasing active enzymes that feed on ammonia residue left behind in pet urine and other organic materials. So not only does it get out the stain, it eliminates the odor deep down within the carpet at its source-which discourages re-soiling. The result: Stains and odors are completely eliminated, leaving carpets, floors, furniture, and other surfaces fresh and your beloved pet out of the dog house. Of course, it works on much more than pet urine: any organic stain-vomit, feces, and all the gross stuff, whether human or animal-lifts out of rugs, carpets, and upholstery easily and completely. And not only is our Stain & Odor Eliminator child and pet friendly, but it’s also so safe on carpets its earned approval from the trusted Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI).
Many of our customers tell us this is the most effective stain and odor product they’ve ever used. From stinky yellow pet urine and feces to vomit and other organic spills, our professional-strength formula tackles them all. This spray contains natural enzymes that are activated in contact with odors and stains, feeding on ammonia crystals and organic matter until they are completely eliminated.
CARPET & UPHOLSTERY
Our Stain & Odor Eliminator works hard to get rid of the toughest stain and odor problems. It’s certified safe and effective by the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) for all colorfast carpets and works great on most upholstery. If it’s gross, it’s gone!
CONCRETE & TILE
Safe to use on concrete and tile! When using concrete, we recommend covering the treated area with plastic to keep the product wet and active for a few hours. Because concrete is so porous, a treated area can dry out very quickly, especially in warm climates. Placing a piece of plastic or a damp towel over the treated area can help keep the product wet and active.
HARDWOOD & LAMINATE
Our product is safe to use on most hardwood and laminate floors. Just be sure to test in a small inconspicuous area first and don’t leave any standing liquid on the wood. Too much liquid in some wood types can lead to swelling.
Need to wash something with a gross stain? Pre-spray the soiled area and allow to soak for ten minutes before putting in the wash as usual. You can also use 1-2 cups of Stain & Odor Eliminator in a pre-soak cycle to help eliminate gross stains and smells. Then wash as usual.
DIRECTIONS FOR SURFACE STAINS
Pre-test for colorfastness on a hidden area. if color appears on the cloth, discontinue use. Remove as much of the stain or pet urine as possible using a highly absorbent towel.
1. Apply a liberal amount of Rocco & Roxie Stain & Odor Eliminator to the affected area.
2. Let stand 30-60 minutes, then blot with a cloth and let air dry.
DIRECTIONS FOR DEEP ODOR PROBLEMS
STEP 1: SOAK THE STAIN
Use enough product to thoroughly penetrate both the carpet and underlying pad (or upholstery and underlying cushion). The best practice is to try and soak the problem area with an amount of Stain & Odor Eliminator equal to the urine. This allows the product to penetrate deep into the carpet and come in full contact with the urine.
STEP 2: LET IT SIT
One hour is the minimum recommended time for existing stains and/or severe odor problems. The longer the treated area can soak, the better. In some circumstances, it might be beneficial to allow the affected area to soak overnight.
STEP 3: COVER WITH A TOWEL AND WEIGHT
Fold a towel and place it over the treated area with a weighted object on top to wick the residual liquid out of the affected area.
STEP 4: VACUUM & INSPECT
Once dried, vacuum and inspect the treated area. Stains and odor should be gone. If not, repeat the procedure. Older stains or persistent odor problems may require more than one treatment.
Note: all cats had been spayed and/or neutered.Growing up with an anxious cat who licked off all his fur on his torso and legs after my moving out, I would have never had to also throw away so many of my clothes had this existed.My cat not only did anxious licking, he would spite urinate in my dirty clothes basket to the point my parents no longer let him enter that room.My mother is extremely OCD about cleaning (who hires a maid weekly but insists on cleaning with them?), and always told me when it has been urinated on by a cat, it’s basically not salvageable.Cut to after moving out….a roommate had a very neurotic female cat, and a stray, non feral cat adopted me and my then-boyfriend.Mind you, this cat was neurotic from the day I met her in a one-pet household – for example, unprovoked, she bit the ex boyfriends thumb through his fingernail, so it wasn’t just the introduction of our lovely addition.We noticed that awful ammonia smell near the tv – one of those 5 feet tall Boxy big screens – and proceeded to just clean it as normal, including renting a steam cleaner, etc.The smell seemed to be getting worse, and as one roommate had a black light we started looking around the room in said area near TV.We were petrified and in awe of what this cat was capable of. There were streaks of urine actually visible to naked eye but we hadn’t thought to check….all the way up the wall, above the tv and then some. She had to have parkoured up there and have some epic spraying power.Obviously I bought all pheromone and enzyme products I could find, but there truly was no escaping it.Current day: moved in with boyfriend not knowing one has a serious marking issue – and he’s neutered. There is another who is not *yet* neutered, but he’s the little guy and will be soon, along with a chill older female cat who is not the culprit.Based on reviews (I didn’t even read the OCD cleaners review until after purchase), I ordered this and a few other products to deter this bane of my existence.To make matters worse, I was blaming the little guy as he isn’t yet neutered. My apologies, little guy.So imagine standing in the mirror in a robe and something wet on your bare leg. The middle one had been the culprit all along and decided he wanted to mark….me. Later, he proceeded to mark my boyfriend while we were all chilling on the couch.The vet chalked it up to me moving in and stress, along with that he can urinate properly again, he’s makin his mark. shortly after moving in, he received a 2k price tag after I noticed he was behaving like my old cat when crystals in his urine caused bladder rupture & emergency surgery – worth it; he stayed with us many more years.This guy doesn’t have that excuse as he’s been peeing on things for a loooong time it seems.Enter this Rocco & Roxie stuff, holy wow. I threw a bunch of clothes in the tub, tossed a liberal amount in with warm water and let their grimy, oily, cat urine selves hangout awhile. Afterwards, I did a pre wash with a bit more and a long wash with a bit more product.Not all the lingering urine smell left a few items, but if a cat pees on something you love, just try, try again. Miraculously ammonia-free clean stuff. I have yet to try it on carpet, and if a body spray for humans is ever available- sign me up.Also, the smell of the product is truly not so bad. It does have a minty smell, but it’s not really too strong and much more pleasant than the overpowering, once invincible foe that is cat urine.Now that I’m laundering everything like a madwoman I’ve had to purchase another gallon – it’s pricey for a reason and worth putting aside any unnecessary luxury purchases.As the epic OCD reviewer says, you do need to reach the root of the issue as well – this alone will probably not stop the marking or random acts of urination outside the box until you know why. In tandem with other products, this is necessary to actually banish the scent.Update: not only is the product amazing, the service matches the quality. I had a few delivery issues, and they were kind enough to send a little dog treat gift which my parent’s dog apparently loves. Thanks so much for giving me back my sanity one gallon at a time!
Rhonda J. –
I had taken in a male cat, about 4 months old, that had been abandoned when his family moved away from my neighborhood. Got him neutored and that was the beginning of a long investment that just didn’t work out well for any of us.He urinated on almost every wall in our house and it extended from about two feet up the wall to two feet out from the wall onto the carpeting. We used Dr. Elseys’s Cat Attract litter and Behavioral Modification Litter Attractant and cleaned it/changed it several times weekly. Didn’t help to modify his behavior.We used Feliway Pheramone Diffusers and tried the collar too. Didn’t modify his behavior. He just clawed and bit away at the collar, making himself bleed and flicking blood on the wall.We tried visiting two veterinarians to see if he had a medical reason, bladder or kidney, for the spraying and they did urine tests and told me that he appears to have a “behavior problem”. This didn’t help to modify his behavior.We tried anxiety drops. These did seem to calm him, nicely, yet didn’t change the spraying.We tried extra litter boxes. 3 boxes, 2 cats. Cleaned daily. No change in spraying.He also clawed up both sofas, sides, fronts, and bottoms. And there are cat scratching towers and hammocks in the house. There is only one other pet, a female cat that’s spayed and younger by a year. She has none of these bad habits and uses the scratch towers. But he is jealous and blocks her from our affections and tries to hog all the food.I was at my wits end. Couldn’t find a home for him, the Humane Society declined to take him citing he had a “behavior problem”, and two animal behavior therapists declined to work with him stating that there was nothing they could do to stop his behavior given the length of time he had been doing it and all the other attempted, yet failed interventions.Then the same day I thought I was going to have to have him euthanized, a friend with a 20 acre farm, said she would take him in as a barn cat.After reading many many many urine removal product reviews and watching even more videos of products being used by other cat owners, I settled on Rocco & Roxie. I usually read the 1 STAR reviews 1st and then work my way up from there. I bought the gallon size and also went to Lowes to purchase an industrial sprayer because I had A LOT of work to do to the entire house and even found he’d sprayed the recliner and the love seat thanks to the black light. And he didn’t just spray them while positioned firmly on the floor. He climbed up in them and sprayed the seats and cushions. Little pisser.I was using Nature’s Miracle for a long time, thinking it was working. Wrong. Black light revealed he was winning that battle with Nature’s Miracle. This was a daily chore that just wore me out, yet love for him kept me trying.It took 5 days of room by room cleansing and several spots had to be cleaned 4-5 times over. Guess those were his favorite spots.This stuff really worked miracles! I had several friends over at night just to see for themselves how impressively it removed the stains and odor. One friend got curious and wondered how well Rocco & Roxie would stand up to kitchen sink cleaning compared to bleach. So out came the black light and both products, kept separated of course and she did her little experiment. Left side of the sink/backsplash bleach………right side of the sink/backsplash Rocco & Roxie. Rocco & Roxie WON on the stainless steel, the laminate, and the wood surface trim! WOWzers!I would highly recommend wearing a respiratory mask though. Stupidly, I wasn’t thinking and didn’t wear a mask. Huge mistake. I had an extremely dry mouth and sensitive gums for a week after using this. I thought that was due to the antihistamines I was using for allergies, but I had stopped using those 2 weeks prior to cleaning with this product. Then when I had to use Rocco & Roxie again for a few stubborn and overlooked spots I had found, within 10 minutes of using it that tingly sensation in my mouth started again and my tongue started to stick to my bottom gum line again. The respiratory masks are about $12 for two at Lowe’s, and because this product works so effectively, I am willing to wear the masks in the future to spot clean any other areas where I need to use Roccclo & Roxie on in the future or carpet. The product smells quite pleasant. Because of the potential for sensitivity I would also say, maybe it is best to place the other pets of the household in a room where they won’t be exposed to the product until it dries and don’t let children around the wet sprayed areas……..be sure it dries first. Took approximately 2 hours to dry.So how is he doing on the farm? Not well. He doesn’t like any of the other farm animals and is hiding. He’s scared. He’s left his safe place inside the barn and has retreated to under the barn outside and he bit my friend. Hard. Really hard. 🙁 He wasn’t a biter previously. At all.Pictured above are SOME of the products we tried to use, including Rocco & Roxie.This is an amazing product!
This cleaner honestly is a MIRACLE cleaner, I’m not even kidding! It saved me and I seriously can’t say enough good things about it!I wanted something that was safe enough to spray indoors that wouldn’t hurt my cats with chemicals, yet something that was going to be powerful to eliminate the spraying that some of them had randomly (after many years of living together already) decided they would start doing around my house. Being that I had more than one cat it was hard to detect which one the culprit was, and which of the exact areas of my house that they were “competing for” – all I knew is that I could smell it all of a sudden so it must be happening that one of them (or more of them) were mad at or with something – for reasons that I had tried everything to fix and figure out prior, to no avail. After a month or so – there were a few areas in my house that were clear that one or more of the cats had sprayed – I would clean the area’s that were clearly used as a “marking battleground” with soap, vinegar, cleaning products – you name it, I tried it…literally nothing worked – the smell was ALWAYS still kind of there after I deep cleaned, and I swear my cats would watch me clean it and think “yeah right, that’s not going to work.” Sure enough, after spending hours cleaning, they would go back to that same spot the next day to continue competing.It got to the point that no matter how hard I cleaned the smell just wouldn’t go away no matter what I did, and I was starting to feel uncomfortable about finally being able to have people over to my house again since the pandemic…it was beyond frustrating.I stumbled upon the Rocco & Roxie cleaner on Amazon (after spending hours over many days scrolling through options and reviews of other cleaners that claimed to do the same things that this cleaner does – none of the others that I had look at on Amazon seemed like they were going to be a good fit.) Then – thank GOODNESS, the fates led me to this cleaner – I read the reviews for Rocco and Roxie and all of the descriptions seemed to fit what I also needed it for, and seemed to have very satisfied customers after using it. I bought the small bottle and anxiously waited for it to come in the mail, (I really couldn’t wait – hoping beyond hope that this worked…but not wanting to get my hopes up too high.) As soon as it was delivered to my house I seriously ripped open the box and tested it out….and folks it was seriously like someone waved a magic wand in my house – I went around the house spraying their “usual spots” that I had figured out, and it was like they were never there – the smell was gone (the few stains that were there – poof – GONE!) Thinking it was too good to be true, I waited for the spots that I used it on to dry to see if the smell was still gone and – it was that good – the smell in any part of the house that used to smell was GONE! I was so amazed that I started spraying some other spots in the house that I suspected but wasn’t sure about. I went through the entire bottle in less than a day – spraying various spots in my house. Almost instantly the smell of pee and cat spray went away! All of my hours upon hours of cleaning over the last months hadn’t even touched these spots from a smell standpoint and with one spray of this cleaner the smell in each part of my house – was gone – it was THAT easy!Just as amazing, if not more – none of my cats are not in any way interested in going back to those spots any longer – and I haven’t had an issue with them spraying or competing for “their” spots in the house since I sprayed it the first time – this cleaner also really does completely take out the scent that only cats can smell too, which make them go back to re-mark an area that they already marked to continue to assert that the area is theirs – none of them have gone back to any of the areas since I used this cleaner!I have also used it on just about every type of material; hardwood, wooden chests, carpet, clothing, couch fabric, cabinets, outside – none of the areas that I have used this cleaner on have stained or look any different condition wise than they looked before I used it! I think that says a lot about the harmful chemicals that aren’t in this spray and more to what has been scientifically put together in this spray to work against the science that creates any kind of smell in the first place.The day that I received the small bottle in the mail, after going through more than half the bottle of it it so quickly – I immediately jumped on Amazon and bought the big gallon option. In the same order, I also bought a small, cheap funnel on Amazon. Whenever I need to fill the small bottle (which isn’t often at all now, because it’s gotten rid of the smell and my problem of my cats even trying to re-mark,) I use the funnel and put it at the top of the small bottle and pour the contents of the gallon jug of this cleaner into the small bottle so that I have the option of the spray bottle to “arm” myself with when I need it.Whatever the makers of this amazing cleaner have created to fight the enzymes that the description explains that this cleaner fights (like others don’t) really truly works – they have created something that they have truly tested and worked the Science of because – it WORKS!I really don’t need to use it at all much any longer (every once in a while one of the cats will try again in a new spot not used before and as soon as I find the spot – or smell it and seek it out – I arm myself with the spray bottle and douse the spot in this miracle cleaner and that spot in the house isn’t even a thought to them any longer, or a smelling nuisance to me any longer.)The cost might be a bit more than most of the cleaners out there but TRUST ME, if you’re going through the same thing I did – or just need to get rid of any kind of smell (not just pet smells – though those are the worst – but this will work on ANY smell you have in your house) – Rocco & Roxie is WORTH it’s weight in gold and then some – it’s priceless! It does something that no other cleaner can do! It really does act tough on stains and odors and gets down deep to never make the offending smell a problem again.I have even used it on my garbage can when it started to smell a little strange – I poured some of this cleaner in the bottom of the can, added a bit of hot water – scrubbed it a bit and voila – smelled as fresh and new as if I had just bought it!The smell of the spray itself isn’t offending at all either, (I actually think that it has a bit of a a floral smell,) it doesn’t smell like chemicals at all and after a few hours you don’t even notice that you even sprayed it – it just smells like your house again. It can be used on literally ANYTHING that has a smell and it will fight against whatever the smell is and whatever that smell has left behind to make that smell, as if it was never there to begin with after you spray this cleaner on whatever it is!The piece of mind in knowing that I have this close at hand whenever I need it for anything, is SUCH a relief – it has saved me – my house smells like my own again and I can have people over without worrying that my house smells. If there is any kind of odor in my house caused by anything I know that this spray is just a few steps away to be able to solve it! It really is THAT GOOD!And the makers of this cleaner are private sellers that aren’t a big corporation – which I love even more – supporting a small business that is doing amazing things! You can tell they take pride in their product (I received an email after I placed both orders of this asking me to please let them know if I had any problems and to send any feedback if I had any because they take customer satisfaction very seriously – I don’t doubt that for a second! )Do yourself a favor and don’t look further than this cleaner, spend a little more to get something that truly, truly works! You won’t regret it and I can bet that you will be buying more of it like I did after using it for the first time, just so that you have it on hand! Bravo Rocco & Roxie Bravo!
Samantha T –
Had a litter of GSD pups over the winter/spring and couldn’t take them out very much when potty training (lots of heavy snow here in the mountains)..so I made the mistake of using puppy pads ? Fast forward 9 months and the 1 pup I kept from the litter can’t quite seem to grasp that he shouldn’t still be peeing where the old puppy pads used to be. So I’ve had 1 section of hardwood floor in my foyer that has smelled like pee for months now..no matter what I tried to get rid of it! AND I TRIED EVERYTHING. Got this stuff yesterday, sprayed a heavy application of it on the area, let it sit for a couple hours, then mopped up with just warm water. I swear the smell was 99% gone almost immediately ??Will be re-applying today and letting it sit for even longer, but for the first time in months I came downstairs this morning & didn’t smell pee! I think this will help tremendously in stopping him from going in that spot.
L. L. Katherman –
Let me set the stage for this long review. I am diagnosing myself as CP phobic (cat pee phobic). This is not yet an official disease but I am working on a patent. The roots of my CP phobia come from my childhood days as does everything else that is wrong with my life but I will skip the details for a book I will later write and discuss with Dr. Oz. Cats were around me in my childhood days and due to absent parents, they peed everywhere and little was done to clean it up. Therefore, the smell of cat pee brings severe anxiety, anger, and anything else that is related to a negative feeling. In 2002, a small kitten followed me into a 7-11. She was friendly but obviously abandoned and probably had her days limited if left in the busy parking lot of this convenience store. So on this wonderful day in the winter, I walked out with a Diet Coke, a pack of Marlboro lights, and a kitten. All three items were destined to deteriorate my health.Fast forward to 2017 and this same cat is still with me. I am almost certain this cat will outlive me and I am only 34. This is the last cat I will ever own. Due to her age, attitude, and possibly her political views, she decided to start peeing on the carpet. I immediately google “life span of indoor cats.” I realized I have at least 2 years left but maybe 5 years. I then take this 11 pound ball of fur to the vet to pay a lot of money for a diagnosis that my cat is healthy and a brat. Both of us come home hating each other. The peeing continues. Below is how I handled the situation in which she is still alive and I am slightly more unhinged than before. Several products will be mentioned as I am copying and pasting this review to all the companies who are responsible in allowing this cat to currently live through her natural life with me.I spent a HUGE chunk of money on the litter robot. I recommend going to the litter robot website and researching this expensive toilet for cats. They have great customer service too. The litter robot is life changing for anyone who actually plans on owning cats for fun and for cats who refuse to use a dirty litter box. Due to my CP phobia, I plunked down the money. Everything worked great until my cat saw me enjoying life. The peeing began again. I put down a plain old square litter box and added “Cat Attract” litter. The peeing stopped. My adorable ball of high maintenance fur now uses the litter robot to go number two and the plain square box to go number one. The “Cat Genie” trash can is a must with anyone who has CP phobia. It keeps the smell down to a minimum and saves on trash bags.Now that my 15 year old queen is satisfied with her restroom, I am now left to attack the cat pee smell. Putting Febreeze on a cat pee spot is like putting a cute SuperMan band aid on an 8 inch deep gash; it’s super adorable but we all know I am going to pass out from the blood loss. Attacking cat pee is serious business and requires hours of work, determination, and money. Did I state how I will never own a cat again?First you will need Rocco and Roxie pet stain remover. Just buy the jug if you are battling cat pee. The spray bottle will not be used. Pour Rocco and Roxie on the cat pee. It needs to be a puddle that soaks in through the carpet and into the carpet pad. We are not using a band aid, we are going in and sanitizing this dire situation. As you get the spots you can see, grab a UV light, turn off the lights, and prepare for night battle. Find all the illuminating spots and pour that Rocco and Roxie on all spots. Cat pee is no laughing matter to people like me. After all the spots are drenched, wait it out for a few hours and soak as much up with paper towels. If you use a towel, I feel you are transferring cat pee from one spot to the next. There will be a slight chemical smell. Again, cat pee is not like spilling your tumbler of vodka and soda water because the cat trips you up on purpose. Cat pee is anger and anxiety wrapped into one huge ball which needs strong chemicals to destroy.If you are satisfied with Rocco and Roxie, and no odor of cat pee is present, then continue on with your life. If you are CP phobic and can detect a small whiff of cat pee, proceed to step 2.Step two requires buying Angry Orange. Angry Orange is a smell that cats hate and is actually pretty pleasant to others. It smells like straight oranges. I bought the spray bottle and the concentrated refill bottle. Because I am CP phobic, I put a lot of the concentrated angry orange in a spray bottle and a little bit of water. I grabbed my UV light and went after the spots like the crazy, mad woman I have become. I sprayed all the spots only to have the entire house overwhelmed with the smell of orange. I am pretty sure my neighbors think I have opened a juicing station in the middle of my kitchen. I highly recommend following the directions of using the correct ratio of water to Angry Orange. If you do not follow the directions, not only will you think about writing a book called “James and the Giant Orange” but there will be slight orange spots on your carpet. Which now we can go to step 3.Rocco and Roxie has an OxyClean product. This carpet cleaner gets out the toughest stains including my error of Angry Orange stains. Spray the product on any stain, let it sit for 5 minutes, and then start working on it with paper towels.At this point, I am satisfied I have fought a good battle but I am still wary. I have an oreck orbiter to clean my travertine floors. I bought the attachments for cleaning the carpet and also Oreck Dry Carpet Cleaner. I spray the Rocco and Roxie OxyClean product as a mist on a 6 by 6 foot spot and then sprinkle the dry carpet cleaner all over. A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. I rub the cleaner into the carpet with my oreck orbiter. Wait 45 minutes to 2 hours and vacuum. The Dry Carpet Cleaner gets out stains but it also gets out all the allergens and cat litter smell. I am not a fan of steam cleaning carpets. I have never had success. The Dry Carpet Cleaner is great for spring cleaning carpets or being completely unhinged by cat pee and needing to verify, the carpet is indeed clean.Finally, after a week, I spray the areas in where I want my cat to never pee on, walk on, and or let alone even look at with the Natural Lemon Aerosol spray. Cats hate the smell of lemons and oranges.I am now 90 percent satisfied I have won the battle of cat pee. I will not be 100 percent satisfied until I replace all the carpet but that will not happen until my cat crosses the rainbow in which she will probably pee on because that is how she rolls.My cat has cost me a lot of money and time but I hope when I am old and peeing everywhere, that someone will take care of me and I will have two toilets in the same room. Did I state I will never own a cat again?I hope this helps with anyone who has CP phobia and is willing to go above and beyond of getting rid of any trace of cat pee. I wish you well in your battle.UPDATE AUGUST 27, 2017Hello All,Thank you for all the kind comments. I am thrilled my mania puts a smile on so many faces.I received a personal email from the founder and CEO of this company thanking me for the review and offering a free bottle on the house. This is a small, family run business and I can not express how important it is to support these types of companies.Since posting this review, I actually convinced a man to marry me. I clearly missed my chance as a saleswoman because I can sell anything, even a life attached to me and the feline. My cat is going strong and still a narcissistic princess with a special place in my heart and hell.I want to add a few other recommendations to some of the qualms I have read in other reviews. As you may infer with my post, I am borderline OCD with cleanliness. I do squats at the gym just to master the hover technique over a public toilet. My advice is over the top but it works.With any problem in life, you have to attack the source before treating the symptoms. Your decision to own this type of animal is the main source, the actual cat being second with their toilet being the third main source. After having a lot of self reflection on why you chose to own an animal that stalks you as if you were a gazelle and inevitably will latch onto the back of your leg while going for the achilles tendon to bring you down is the first step to solving cat pee problem. Then we move on to see if said cat is healthy and using the litter box. Finally we have to attack the actual cat toilet. Even when litter is scooped, it still holds the smell of cat pee. I change out my cat litter every 2 weeks and sometimes more. This means dumping the entire cat box into a black trash bag and then taking lysol to wipe the interior and exterior. This will help substantially in getting rid of cat pee smell. Again, attack the source, not just the symptoms.Many have stated they are not fond the Rocco and Roxie cleaning smell. Cat Pee Smell is at the top of my offensive list which also includes items such as robot phone calls to my cell, McDonald’s no longer frying their apple pies, hair in the shower drain, and taxes. When attacking cat pee, you have to neutralize the chemical composition of this awful smell. The enzymes in Rocco and Roxie deliver this result as best as I have seen. The after smell does not sit well with all. I use Rocco and Roxie with Oreck dry carpet cleaner every two months to clean my rugs and carpets. I admit I tire of the cleaning smell but have found a solution many may want to try.After cleaning the pee and other items out of carpet, grab baking soda and some natural essential oils. I found a box of oils on amazon. Add tea tree oil and lavender to the baking soda. In fact, add whatever smell you would like for the olfactory. Add lots of drops to the baking soda and mix well. Shake this mixture all over the carpet. It needs to look like it just snowed. Get a brush, preferably with a long handle to protect your back, and agitate the baking soda into your carpet. Leave it on over night for best results and then vacuum. If you can’t wait that long, at least let it sit two hours. Baking soda and the oils are all natural so safe for humans and animals. This step has helped in creating a more earthy and pleasant smell in my home when I do the manic bi-monthly cleaning.Thank you again for all the responses and I hope one day to get a book published. As of now, I just update a file with favorite pics of myself and a pre-written obituary for my husband to publish in case my cat does accomplish her life long goal. Within the three column long obituary, I added few lines about being an “expert Amazon Reviewer”. Sounds morbid, I know, but I can’t trust my other half to use a decent picture of my face or remind the public why they will miss the Unhinged Crazy Cat Lay Who Is Not Fond Of Cats.Kindest Regards,LLK
Is this stuff more expensive then other “like items?” Yes… BUT that’s because there is nothing “LIKE” THIS STUFF!! I have 5 kids, 3 dogs and 2 cats so our carpet and furniture takes a beating. Decided to try this stuff after one of our cats urinated on our couch. SIDE STORY, for anyone without cats… Our old cat urinated on our couch and it had to be thrown out. It was that bad! Cat urine does not come out, that is until now. After our newer cat urinated on our couch this time I was desperate, I couldn’t afford to throw out another couch. After receiving this product, days after the urine set in the couch. I sprayed it on, let it set, then used the house function of our carpet cleaner and BAM!!!! The smell was GONE!!!! It did smell like the spray itself (which isn’t bad, just different) for a few days, but since then it has disappeared and you’d never know anything ever happened.After it worked so well on the couch I decided to try it on the carpet. We had some stains that had been there for well over a year. Even after multiple carpet cleanings and using different stain removers (which didn’t work). So I again, sprayed, let it sit, then used the carpet cleaner and WALLAH the stains were gone!!!Not only would I recommend this product but if they have stocks I’d recommend buying them too!! This is pure magic!!!
Hello, If your reading this review, then you are probably dealing with some very naughty fur babies, hence the reason for me writing this, because so was I. I rescued 4 beautiful stray kittens about 10 years ago and hand fed these beautiful little creatures round the clock. While they were the cutest little balls of fur you ever did see, they grew up to be the naughtiest cats with the worst habits. As they grew up, I don’t know if they plotted behind my back to see who could make the messiest of messes, but they definitely won that battle hands down. We moved into a house that had prior chaotic cats because they would congregate to certain rooms and reek havoc. They took ” Tea Time ” to PEE TIME. I have searched the market, the same way they searched for a pee place like a pilot looking for the perfect place to land a 747! It was to the point where I considered starting a new career in sewing and fashion and make the ultimate cat designer line of leak proof, pee proof and shred proof undergarments, just for the murder mitten mafia squads with four legs running throughout our homes acting like fools, that act all sweet and innocent, but the brief moment our backs are turned, so are theirs, right up against the walls, with their tails flailing in the air and then we take off like were doing the 50 yard dash to catch them in the act and as usual, they’ve already ran under every piece of furniture at least twice, gone through 2 rooms and are hiding under something that we haven’t seen the under side of since the day we bought it. So like me, you parade (up and down & repeat) the pet isle and the cleaning isle for what seems like an eternity because somehow you think there has to be something that you overlooked the last time you went through there, ( the day before ) and as usual, it’s the same stuff that you’ve tried at least a half dozen times with zero success and why you ask, it’s because there is nothing in those cleaners that deters them and if anything, it attracts them right back to every single mark they left behind and then after you have scrubbed and scrubbed your entire day away on your hands and knees reminding yourself how much you love them and have gone through more paper towels than a retirement home, your wonderful little furball comes in to inspect your hard work, goes over to their favorite spot, waves their magic wand and poof, you now have a sprinkler system…AGAIN! So you now find yourself right back to where you started from, at the store parading the same 2 isles and the cycle continues.. I did what most other pet moms did, I jumped online for products to resolve this issue once and for all and I began to read the reviews and listened to other pet parents stories and the more I read about this product, I asked myself #1- Is this stuff really going to work? and #2- Is it worth the cost? I figured that with all the positive reviews, what’s the worst that happens, it’s just like every other product that we tried at $5-$10 per bottle about 20 times.. So I bit my tongue and I thought go big or become the next top garment designer for cats, so I bought the gallon and I waited for it to arrive and that it did and on time and let me tell you, I was never so excited for a cleaner to arrive. I unearthed my shampooer from the closet, poured in the cleaner and away I went. I was skeptical at first as with every cleaner but that day, I became the latest and greatest magician because it all, DISAPPEARED! Everything that comes from a pet whether it be the smell and odor or discoloration of them marking that area, the pee in general.. It cleans it all, including the walls, ( just incase they waved their magic wands on them too.)The strength of the cleaner is strong so open a window and maybe use a fan to air the room, but if you wet the area first with water and then go back over it with the cleaner, it breaks down the stain better and you save more cleaner by doing that so you don’t waste any. I bought it and used it about a month ago or a little longer and there is no residual smell of the fur babies past bad habits, no lingering smell from the cleaner, it just smells fresh & clean. I am so glad that I took the chance on this company and their product because it is AMAZING. It also works on anything that can be laundered. Put some in a spray bottle, spray the mysterious area well let it sit for a few minutes and throw it in the wash and whatever it was will be just a thing of the past. If you have some naughty fur babies that forget their manners, this is one product you will be happy you bought. It saved my carpets, money down the road and definitely my peace of mind .. Happy pet parenting..
Don’t listen to anyone who doesn’t give this 5 stars. They didn’t follow the steps, obviously. I have a worse cat pee problem than all of you combined and this was the only- the ONLY – product that worked. Just listen. We just moved into this new house with plenty of space for our three cats. The two females and one male are treated with premium respect- each has its own covered litter box in its own location, each receives two healthy portions of raw food daily and at least 4 hours outside. They return eagerly when called. They are seemingly happy and content with our situation. The male cat is not ours, it’s my mothers, and we’ve been watching him for 6 months. When we moved, he began lining one particular wall in my office with urine. Upon further inspection with black lights, there seems to be a size able 1-2 ft wide strip of urine lining the 20 foot wall. There is so much that I am forced to conclude that he couldn’t have done it alone. We learned the previous tenants had cats, and we believe our male is lining this wall to mark over pre-existing urine. This is the only explanation I have, hence the pretext about how we treat the cats, and as a graduate of animal behavioral science I think I’m right on this one. So for the last month I’ve been coming home, sniffing the air at the front door (20 to 30 feet from the urine wall) and dawning my gloves angrily as I get down and clean the urine wall and underlying carpet with every cleaner known to man. I’ve used three bottles of urine gone, Resolve, natures miracle (cat and dog), water and vinegar, just vinegar, just water…I’ve tried scrubbing, stamping, vacuuming, blotting- all to come home to the smell that lingers. I’ve heard cat pee can end marriages and I see why now. Once I read that lady’s review for Rocco and Roxie, I said screw it and ordered a 32 oz bottle, hoping that the combination of enzymes and bacteria could make a difference. Let me tell you, IT DID. I thought the man vs cat pee war was lost, and I had almost given up hope. Problem is the volume. I used the entire 32 oz, let it sit for three or four hours, blotted thoroughly and then vacuumed with our specialized pet accident vacuum cleaner that has claws on one of the heads to penetrate deep into the shallow carpet. The smell is about 90 percent gone. So I begged my mom to buy the gallon for me, (it’s her cat after all) and we’re waiting for it eagerly in the mail. We run an air bnb in the house and we had a poor review because of the odor which was made one day before the original 32 oz bottle of Rocco and Roxie came. I’m hoping that a full gallon will be able to get rid of this. Thank you for making the only product that works.Lee

Aren’t they cute? Not when they pee all over your house!!! I acquired the yorkie when my mom passed away 9 years ago. The yorkie is neurotic and despite getting trainers and literally spending almost a year taking the fur ball out 8-10 times a day, she would still pee on the floor. After years of this, I finally gave up and resorted to pee pads. This worked until she developed kidney disease and now drinks more than her body weight in water only to have it promptly come out the other end. She no longer seems to care whether she hits the pad and I literally spend my days cleaning up urine, fecal matter and barf from this animal. Despite people raving about Natures miracle… I discovered immediately that it did nothing to rid the smell deposited by this 7 pound peeing machine! I tried Clorox, Resolve , Furry Freshness, and the list goes on and on. I finally decided to try Roccos and was SHOCKED at how well it worked! I have resisted writing a review because I honestly believed it was too good to be true and that at any moment the smell would return. But after 4 years of using it (over 6 gallons worth), I feel it’s finally safe to say the smell is NOT coming back!!! Does it have a strong smell when using it? Yes… quite a bit. BUT… the smell DOES dissipate and it truly does neutralize the urine smell!!! I can happily say that it ALSO gets rid of the stain!!! I have used this on urine, feces AND vomit and it rocks!! So… save your sanity and a whole lot of time, buy this product! Yes, it’s a bit expensive but in my opinion, my sanity is worth every DAMN penny!!! Thank you for a great product and for truly saving me from the funny farm over the last 4 years!!!
I’m not the kind of person who would just have animals peeing all over my house. And since these reviews are a good place for stories, I will tell mine. To explain.Our cat arrived around a year and a half ago. For some reason, people tend to dump cats/litters of kittens off at my house. I live near open fields, maybe they think we’re a farm, idk. Usually I’ll just rehome them. One particular cat I took a real liking too. Very chill, easy going. Not needy. I took the usual steps to make sure no one was missing him. No chip. No claims to him on social media posts.He was social, litter trained, stays off my counters, very tolerant of my little one. Probably dumped, like many others. I liked him so talked my husband in to letting me keep this one.Soon I started to see exactly why he was was dumped. I have never known such a fussy cat in all my life. O.m.g.First of all his stomach is incredibly sensitive. Every time he would eat, puke everywhere. Every single time. Ok. I did a bit of research and started buying a VERY expensive brand of cat food. Seemed to work. Cut the puking down by 95%. Ok.After a while, he started climbing into the bathtub and kitchen sink. He would sit there and beg to be given a drink straight from the faucet. Would not touch the water bowl, no matter how often I changed the water. Just beg for faucet water CONSTANTLY. Drove me insane. The puking and the cat constantly sitting under faucets, incessantly meowing, was getting old. But by this time one of my older kids had fallen completely in love with this cat. I didn’t want to break my sons heart and I didn’t want him ending up at the pound or dumped somewhere else. So I problem solved by buying him a cat water fountain. Probably the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever purchased, but it worked. No more begging in the sink. Ok.Moving forward, and the reason for me buying this product, his highness decided he was going to get fussy about cat litter. Every time I would replace litter with new, he would turn his nose up at the litter box and pee on the floor. Directly in front of the litter box. If I even added fresh litter on top of the old, pee on the floor. I started buying unscented cat litter. That did seem to make a lot of difference, but now I had an awful smell in my house. I tried every home made concoction the internet could come up with , every product Walmart offered, to no avail. The smell always returned. Nothing like waking up in the morning, walking out into the hallway only to be hit in the face by the smell of cat pee. Dont get me wrong, I like the cat. He is cute and fluffy and nice. But the puking, pet fountain, peeing in front of the litter box, stink was wearing on me.Once again I took to the internet. I found a product called Angry Orange. Got good reviews. Seemed kind of potent. In those reviews I saw many people mention this product as well. Not wanting to deal with the smell any longer, I ordered both products. So if one didn’t work, I could try another right away. I was desperate.I decided to try this spray first. And then try the orange stuff if this didn’t work. I haven’t even tried the orange stuff.This spray took care of it the first time used. Like, completely gone. Like it was never there. And since purchasing this product my cat has gone on the floor a couple of times (bc I had the nerve to scrub out the box and put all new litter, pshh). I’ve used this product right away, every time, and there is never a smell after. Some people complain about the smell of this stuff. But I honestly dont mind it. It smells like cleaner. Which is 100x better than the smell of cat pee, imo. And it doesn’t linger. Once its dry, the cleaner smell is gone. Afterward there is no stain on the carpet. Absolutely nothing to indicate an incident.Thanks to this product my son gets to keep his precious floof ball, (who I’ve named His Imperial Majesty, Mr. Swiffer the Fat. ) and I dont have to deal with that awful smell ever again. I will be buying a gallon of this stuff to keep on hand. It is expensive but its completely worth it.
